Empowering lifting success with world-class customized yarns

The introduction of high-performance fibers into the world of lifting operations has been a game-changer. It’s now time for fiber suppliers, yarn producers and sling manufacturers to help one another bring this technology to the marketplace.

Given TP’s expertise in fiber characteristics and processing, we are uniquely qualified to assist clients in meeting end-users’ demands.

Our on-site production and testing facilities mean we can meet – and exceed – our clients’ expectations when it comes to twist levels and blends of Titan HMPE, PES and aramids. We are committed to helping clients maximize performance and efficiency through sling design.

Lifting & Round slings

Yarns play a crucial role in the production of round slings for lifting purposes. Important criteria to consider when selecting the best yarn solution for your lifting needs:

  • Strength
  • Flexibility
  • Weight
  • Fiber fatigue
  • Durability
  • Certification

High-Performance and Commodity Yarns

High-performance yarn and commodity yarn are two types of yarn that differ in their characteristics and properties.

High-performance yarns are made from advanced materials such as aramids, high density polyethylene, or high-strength polyesters. These yarns are designed to have exceptional strength, durability, and resistance to extreme conditions, making them suitable for specialized applications.

Commodity yarns are made from conventional materials such as polyester or acrylic and are produced in large quantities at low cost. Commodity yarns are generally designed for standard applications, and their properties are standardized to meet minimum performance requirements.

In terms of properties, high-performance yarns have superior tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and dimensional stability compared to commodity yarns. They may also have unique features such as flame and chemical resistance, depending on the application.
